Voices of Hatred: A look at the noxious views of six of the speakers at A Voice for Men's upcoming conference

Curious about the views of the people scheduled to speak at A Voice for Men’s “Men’s Issues” conference next week? Here’s a little video guide. CONTENT WARNING: Domestic violence, rape, incest.

If you’d like to have their quotes in writing for future reference, here’s a transcript of the quotes used in the video. I’ve linked to the source of each quote (or to posts of mine that discuss the quotes in greater detail). Enjoy!

Mike Buchanan has said:

I believe girls learn at a young age that whining gets them what they want, especially from over-indulgent parents who might later wonder why their daughters became Entitlement Princesses. Inevitably these girls continue whining into adolescence and adulthood because they continue to get what they want. It’s up to men to break the cycle …

Men living in houses with cellars can put a sign on the cellar door, ‘The Whine Cellar’, and politely direct whining women towards it. In houses without a cellar, the smallest room in the house – or possibly the garden shed – could be designated ‘The Whine Box’.

Stefan Molyneux has said:

Women who choose the assholes will fucking end this race. They will fucking end this human race, if we don’t start holding them a-fucking-ccountable. … Women who choose assholes guarantee child abuse. Women who choose assholes guarantee criminality, sociopathy. Politicians, all the cold-hearted jerks who run the world came out of the vaginas of women who married assholes.

And I don’t know how to make the world a better place without holding women accountable for choosing assholes. Your dad was an asshole because your mother chose him. Because it works on so many women. If “asshole” wasn’t a great reproductive strategy it would have been gone long ago. Women keep that black bastard flame alive. They cup their hands around it, they protect it with their bodies. They keep the evil of the species going by continually choosing these guys.

If being an asshole didn’t get women, there would be no assholes left. If women chose nice guys over assholes we would have a glorious and peaceful world in one generation. Women determine the personality traits of the men because women choose who to have sex with, and who to have children with, and who to expose those children to. …

Your dad is who he is fundamentally because your mother was willing to fuck him and have you. Willing and eager to fuck the monster. Stop fucking monsters and we get a great world. Keep fucking monsters, we get catastrophes, we get war, we get nuclear weapons, we get national debt, we get incarcerations … Women worship at the feet of the devil and wonder why the world is evil. And then you know what they say? We’re victims!

Erin Pizzey has said:

If you’re referring to Paul’s statement that many or most women fantasize about being taken, I’m sorry but that’s the truth. That doesn’t mean they want to be raped, but it’s a fantasy I think almost all women have. And I think he went on to say that feminists like Andrea Dworkin who were and are so obsessed with rape are really projecting their own unconscious sexual frustration because men don’t give them enough attention. Andrea was a very sad lonely woman like this–I didn’t know her but I knew of her, and I knew Susan Browmiller and you can just read her stuff to see it there.

Karen Straughan has written:

I used to live under a young couple with a baby. I’d listen as she followed him from room to room upstairs, stomping, slamming things, throwing things, screaming. After about an hour, he’d eventually hit her, and everything would go quiet. An hour after that, they’d be out with the baby in the stroller, looking perfectly content with each other.

A man I know who has experience with men in abusive relationships would get his clients to answer a questionnaire. Things like, “after the violence, did you have sex?” “If so, how would you rate the sex?” 100% of men in reciprocally abusive relationships said “yes” to the first, and “scorching” to the second.

He also posited that the much-quoted cycle of violence–the build-up, the explosion, the honeymoon period–correlates with foreplay, orgasm and post-coital bliss.

Erin Pizzey called it “consensual violence”, and said in the main, that was the type she’d see at her shelter. It is also the type that results in the most severe injuries in women, surprise surprise, likely because our “never EVER hit a woman” mentality has those men waiting until they completely lose control of their emotions before giving their women what they’re demanding.

Warren Farrell has said:

The worst aspect of dating from the perspective of many men is how dating can feel to a man like robbery by social custom …

Evenings of paying to be rejected can feel like a male version of date rape.

If a man ignoring a woman’s verbal “no” is committing date rape, then a woman who says “no” with her verbal language but “yes” with her body language is committing date fraud. …

We have forgotten that before we began calling this date rape and date fraud, we called it exciting.

Somehow, women’s romance novels are not titled He Stopped When I Said “No”. They are, though, titled Sweet Savage Love, in which the woman rejects the hand of her gentler lover who saves her from the rapist and marries the man who repeatedly and savagely rapes her. …

It is important that a woman’s “noes” be respected and her “yeses” be respected. And it is also important when her nonverbal “yeses” … conflict with those verbal “noes” that the man not be put in jail for choosing the “yes” over the “no.” He might just be trying to become her fantasy.

Warren Farrell has said:

Incest is like a magnifying glass. In some circumstances it magnifies the beauty of the relationship, and in others it magnifies the trauma. …

When I get my most glowing positive cases, 6 out of 200, the incest is part of the family’s open, sensual style of life, wherein sex is an outgrowth of warmth and affection. …

[M]illions of people who are now refraining from touching, holding, and … caressing their children, when that is really a part of a caring, loving expression, are repressing the sexuality of a lot of children and themselves. Maybe this needs repressing, and maybe it doesn’t.

Paul Elam has said:

In the name of equality and fairness, I am proclaiming October to be Bash a Violent Bitch Month.

I’d like to make it the objective for the remainder of this month, and all the Octobers that follow, for men who are being attacked and physically abused by women – to beat the living shit out of them. I don’t mean subdue them, or deliver an open handed pop on the face to get them to settle down. I mean literally to grab them by the hair and smack their face against the wall till the smugness of beating on someone because you know they won’t fight back drains from their nose with a few million red corpuscles.

And then make them clean up the mess.

Now, am I serious about this?

No. Not because it’s wrong. It’s not wrong.

But it isn’t worth the time behind bars or the abuse of anger management training that men must endure if they are uppity enough to defend themselves from female attackers.

Right, that’s why multiple staffers at AVfM, including Dean Esmay, identify as gay rights activists.

bub, identifying as a gay rights activist doesn’t do squat. You have to actually back that shit up with your words and/ or actions.

Also Woody, just for further clarification, do these activists specify that they support all members of the community or just gay men?

Also, even if I was convinced that AVFM actually were activists for gay rights, that doesn’t actually change the fact that they are misogynistic and transphobic and racist? Or, in other words, overwhelmingly reactionary? One (ridiculously questionable) example of not completely hating anyone unlike them does not actually make them good people OR activists.

http://www.cs.indiana.edu/~connelly/marshmallows.html

This is the easiest one I have used.

I left out the vegetable cooking spray and spread it on a silicone pat inside a non-stick sheet tray instead.

I also upped the vanilla a little because I like the flavor, but that’s just my preference.

These are also really good if you roll them in cocoa or toasted coconut, as opposed to the suggested corn starch (to prevent sticking).

I have not tried adding cocoa to the recipe yet because I’m not sure if it would affect the texture.

The one below is more complicated and requires far more ingredients but the results were more typical of traditional marshmallows.

I keep meaning to try vegetarian marshmallows just because conventional marshmallows are so low-quality that they’re kind of gross. Often vegetarian/vegan is a great way to find foods that are higher quality, even if you’re not vegetarian yourself.

@piratejennie: thanks, I have bookmarked both recipes. The first one will be easier for me to make as I can guarantee that NZ has the ingredients. I’m not so sure about being able to get all the ingredients mentioned in the second recipe – in particular, the gum powders. But I can always look for them. 🙂

@Ally S & wewereemergencies

In absolute agreement on all counts. I just wanted to see if Woody could (or even would) cough up reliable material supporting his statement.

Honestly, I couldn’t give a rat’s arse about their supposed activism given all of their other reprehensible and dangerous actions, more wanted to poke holes in the use of the term at all and see if I could get the troll to dance.

I am happy to trade recipes or talk about homemade alternatives to pre-packed foods if people are into it.

Although I’m vegetarian I do cook meat for my friends and SO who aren’t. I also make some pretty mean treats for our Furrinati overlords.

I’ll scoot it over to an appropriate personal open forum thread though.

Ok, that’s hilarious. I’m catching up with this thread and assume other people have suitably torn this to shreds, because you don’t “identify” as an activist. You do activism. I’m not a “gay rights activist” even though I’ve been to marches, demonstrations, fundraisers and donated money to gay non-profits. Activists run and work for non-profit groups, organize demonstrations and protests, raise money and actually do activism. It’s an activity, not a state of mind.

Coconut ice is pretty easy to make, and I reckon you could get a good pink colour using pomegranate juice instead of artificial colour. I cut some pomegranate up for my birds and it looked like blood everywhere, it was so red.

I have been experimenting with marshmallows (best so far maple and bourbon – fabulous in hot chocolate) and would love to try some vegetarian ones too. So thank you piratejennie for the recipe links. 🙂

piratejennie – crushing a human’s natural desire to ascent to catdom is miscatry!

Louis sported a tail briefly one morning a few months ago. He said it felt very strange (surprise!) having one’s spine extended that far and he kept wanting to chase it. He did it ‘cos I’ve long since said he’s a cat, not least since he purrs on occasion. Ah, the things one can do once one’s in Spirit!

“I’m not sure if there have been studies showing a correlation between entitlement and the perception of having been friendzoned. What we’re doing is evaluating for ourselves. Asking if Nice Guys feel entitled and are objectifying their targets is like asking if it’s mean to kick puppies. You don’t need a study for something that obvious”

So there is no evidence at all, just a world view filtered through your ideology. If people you like say so, then it must be true.

Thank you for clarifying.

I am explaining this people way more often than I should, but I’ll try to give you a quick summary of why the MRM is homophobic in hopes that you shut the hell up:

1. Its theoretical base (whatever it is) is comprised of, among other things, evolutionary psychology research. Such research categorically erases homosexual people or at best treats them as evolutionary aberrations that in no way challenge the heteronormative, patriarchal social framework that evo psych researchers presuppose. In short, MRAs support scientific discourses that reinforce homophobic narratives.

2. Quite a few MRAs insult others with homophobic slurs such as the f-word, dyke, and especially lesbophobic phrases like “man-hating lesbian”.

3. A great deal of MRAs identify as conservative, and the hatred for homosexual people is especially strong among such MRAs. And yet these same MRAs are frequently accepted as “rational dissenters” by even the ostensibly pro-gay MRAs.

4. MRAs, being reactionaries, are accepting of patriarchal norms, which in turn oppress homosexual people.

So yeah, that’s why you’re totally fucking wrong about this, Woody.

Things I learned: being nice will magically end all oppression, psychology today is a reputable source, you can be an AIDS denier and gay rights activist, and that 1 mg ativan makes Marie loopy. Idk whether to be jealous or sympathetic, since 1 mg makes me mostly able to cope with OMGS TOO MANY PEOPLE!

And I need 0.5mg to be in the same room as my father, as, surprise surprise, being nice doesn’t actually make bigots stop being assholes.

Wow, those quotes are really messed up and definitely hateful. There’s no need for any conference of this sort – none whatsoever. What men need to do, I think, is stop buying into the warrior/savior/prince/king narrative, dismantle systemic misogyny that is embodied institutionally, and start listening deeply to women and indigenous cultures before we completely destroy the planet. So far, all I’ve seen from the so-called “Men’s Rights Movement” organizations has been counter-Feminist rhetoric that’s just another form of denial. For speaking this way, I’m often called “gay” or a “pussy” by other men… so that’s all the proof that I need to know that nothing had really changed and that there’s still a lot of work to do. It won’t happen at one of these conferences – that’s for sure. Peace.

What the Fuck did I just read?

I’d seen references to Elizabeth, but not found the thread (I was away that weekend).

Not English. Possessed of a familiar set of idisyncratic linguistic quirks; a level of very short sentences, and overly polite semi self-abnegations. The pity party at the end was very reminiscent of someone recent (Erin?).

The level of “get outta here” was unbelievable (private schools, where everyone got along, being polite always leads to people coming to understanding).

I esp. liked the logical matter/anti-matter of her father.

P1: Denying custody to a parent = oppression
P2: Her father was, therefore oppressed.

C: Ergo “Justice” requires her father be given custody: thus oppressing her father’s ex-wife.

So, we see that Elizabeth thinks oppression is just ducks, so long as it’s a woman being oppressed (using Elizabeth’s definition of oppression).

Where does David say that? Or are you complaining that sexist, racist, ableist, rape-apolist & trolling commenters of any gender are unwelcome, even if they’re men? Why would that be inciting hatred? Surely that is telling the inciters of hatred that they are wrong?

*Sigh* David is a man. I am a man (punch). Many commenters here are men. We are quite welcome here. Actually, men in general are welcome in most places, that’s part of how male privilege works.

How to recognize entitlement born of male privilege: tell a man he’s not welcome somewhere, lean back and enjoy the arglebargle about men being opressed and not welcome unless they bow down to the gynocracy and blah blah.

Then again, misogynists, like other bigots, should not feel welcome in most places.

If you dont support masculinism how can equality be achieved through a biased lens?

If I understand your phrasing correctly, you are under the impression that in order to achieve equality, we must seek to perpetuate harmful gender roles and gender dichotomies, instead of dismantling them and just letting everyone be what they are, not what they’re led to believe they should be. Which is part of what feminism is trying to achieve. The MRM is all about not challenging any existing beliefs and structural hierarchies based on gender, which is why its status as a ”movement” is shaky at best.

I am a man who doesn’t support masculinism, because I have a pretty good idea of what is meant by ”masculinism”. Hint: It’s something disgusting.

Blarg, nice try trolly, but fuck off with your “masculinism” — we hate the men’s rights movement, because it’s no such thing — it’s a movement of misogyny and hatred, not one focused on men’s issues. Don’t try to claim masculinists under your hateful banner.

To everyone else — masculinist is the label adopted by, near as I can tell, the people actually working in men’s issues such as the suicide rate — I’ve yet to see one be a hateful asshole, I have seen them distance themselves from MRAs. I’m sure asshole ones exist, but they seem to be decent people whose views largely align with feminism, but are focused on how toxic masculinity hurts men (which, being men, is, imo, a good way to go about doing feminism)
